Auckland to host Aotearoa Art Fair

Set to be the biggest art fair in New Zealand, the Aotearoa Art Fair is welcoming work from across New Zealand, Australia and the wider Pacific Rim in Auckland.

To be held at the Viaduct Events Centre, the 2024 edition of the Aotearoa Art Fair will feature an array of work and galleries, represented by both established names and emerging talents.

This year’s fair will be about celebrating the rich tapestry of artistry and cultural diversity within Aotearoa and the wider Pacific rim.

“This event celebrates the rich diversity and talent within our artistic community, providing a platform for both established and emerging artists to showcase their work and engage with audiences,” says Jo Duncan, CEO of Aotearoa Art Fair.

Spread across April 18 to the 21st, the Aotearoa Art Fair will feature a number of galleries such as Starkwhite, Gow Langsford Gallery, McLeavey Gallery, Michael Lett and so much more.
